During the battle of Coruscant, Jahan's whole family died. He had spent hours walking through a tunnel to find his sister, killing everyone who stood in his way, only to find her dead by a few hours. Realizing that without the Republic, this chaos would continue, Jahan devoted himself to the Republic and later the Empire.
Jahan was created by John Ostrander for the Agent of the Empire comics. He was intended to be an equivalent to James Bond in the Star Wars universe and was heavily influenced by the character. Ostrander was also influenced by other fictional spies such as Jason Bourne.
